Roses are red

by Harry

Poetry challenge: Valentines Day poem.

Submitted by Steve

Roses are red, violets are blue
Here’s a short poem I’ve written for you
These words, they are here to bring you a smile
To make you feel special and loved for awhile

I’m sorry I didn’t buy roses today
But money’s a little bit tight as you say
So I chose a more fiscally sound endeavor
Some words on a page that will last you forever

See, roses bring joy for a moment in time
The bright, shiny petals, surely sublime
Yet those stunning red flowers that beckon your gaze
Will shrivel and wilt within a few days

But the beauty of words, like a river they flow
The greatest of gifts a man can bestow
When summoned from down in the depths of the soul
With deep adoration, these words they extol

So, carry this with you each day of your life
Each day we awaken as husband and wife
I’ll love you with every ounce of my heart
From the day that we met, ’til the day we depart

Happy Valentine’s Day!
